Oklahoma - Hospice

In some cases, families have to make end-of-life care plans as a loved one ages, but the process can be distressing and stressful. But a family who makes these plans early will experience less anxiety over choosing care and will be able to spend more time with their loved one during the final part of their life.

Hospice

Hospice is a kind of end-of-life approach that aims to keep terminally ill individuals comfortable and pain-free. Hospice does not focus on medical treatment, but rather on the wishes of the individual and on creating a peaceful and comfortable environment. A hospice team works with the individual's doctors and the individual to craft a care plan that works best. Hospice care is administered in a private home, a nursing home, or in a hospice facility.
